Yeah well don Prin, not only is that a little excessive but considering that its pretty obvious who would have done it and they know where you live, it would also be extremely stupid.

I would never park over someones drive but if I did and they keyed my car then you can guarentee I would retaliate.

Should definitely let them know they should not do it again though.
Saw this at ASDA the other day. Looks like someone took Prinny's advice:

I actually don't believe that it's illegal to park on somebody's driveway either!

But yeah, people who do this are just s****s. Seeing that it's a Fiat 500, it doesn't surprise me either.

My daughter has just bought a Fiat 500, picked it up on Monday.

But we're back on car talk now...

i'll sensor what i was going to say about fiat 500 drivers

at my old house my old car had to be parked outside next door's house as the street was packed and it was the only place left to park without blocking anyones drive. this was christmas eve late afternoon, I was back in work on boxing day. They took their kids outside on christmas day and built a snowman in the snow, on the pavement leaving literally 1 inch between the snowman and the drivers door of my car. I would have been happy to move it once there was room, which they knew as the lady of the house was on my old college course.

They had massive gardens at the front and the back, but their stupid stunt made sure no-one could use the pavement.

Right after this, the lady neighbour started an open university course, the type with massive heavy books coming regularly by courier, usually on a monday. I refused to take their parcels in after that

It is illegal to block access to the highway on a dropped kerb so if your car is on the drive and someone blocks it ,it is illegal .

If it's a recurring thing speak to the council,they will send someone out to photo it and issue a fine as there happy for the revenue.

Correct. We had new neighbours move in next to us about a year or so ago and they already had 2 cars and then seemed to have people staying with them almost constantly. This meant that their big 7 series BMW was always parked over our drive and we have 2 cars ourselves. We asked them nicely numerous times to move it and they always got really arsey about it. So we rang the council, they came along almost immediately and clamped them! They got a nice little fine and have never done it since. But now they find stupid petty things to complain about all the time, like our cats leaving paw prints on their garden table (like we can stop them) and when our dog went in their garden because there was a hole in the fence, this would be fine, but it's their fence so they were responsible!

Nitpick and not getting at you but...

It's your responsibility to keep your dog in and they may have bought the fance but there is no requirement for a fence anyway so it really is up to you. Requirements are only for maintaining the boundry which can be done with a piece of string if they like.

They sounds like arses though!

Yeah, my grandparents found out the hard way.

Fence was on the neighbours property but was falling apart so they took it down. Grandparents dog kept going over, parents apologized but blamed them for taking down the fence. Turns it its the dog owners fault as the neighbours do not require a fence and if the dog owners need a fence to keep the dog in then its their responsibility to put a fence on their property.

My Grandparents are stubborn old gits so things just went on for ages.

Virgin Media had it in the UK. I thought it was great, and I'm looking forward to the next season.

How can Blu-Ray be dying. That's how you get films. If it wasn't for Blu-ray I wouldn't buy anything.

I read somewhere that a lot of releases are sill selling more on DVD than Bluray. Seems people don't want to pay double in some cases for a fancier version.

Fair enough, but the neighbours demanded we fix it as it was our problem, which was pretty stupid. So we just stuck and old bit of board in front of it.

Job Done. You stopped the dog getting through. if they don't like what you did or how it looks then its up to them to sort the issue out with a more permanent solution.

You did what you needed to do, you put something in place to stop the dog.
